  1. I know it’s cliché but Pet Sounds is my favorite. It’s such a perfect album from start to finish.

  2. Smiley Smile!

  3. I also have to go with Pet Sounds.

  4. Agreed, Pet Sounds is just too classic to ignore.

  5. Pet Sounds! Not just their best but one of the all-time greatest PERIOD.

  6. Wild Honey is the one that’s been doing it for me lately. “I’d Love Just Once to See You” and all the wonderful Carl songs make that one an absolute classic.

  7. Pet Sounds is far and away my favorite. But, for the sake of changing it up, after Pet Sounds I’d go with Today!

  8. I just love Surf’s Up…

  9. Pet Sounds for sure

  10. smiley smile

  11. Yeah I really don’t think there will be many other non-Pet Sounds responses. So yeah….Pet Sounds.

  12. Pet Sounds!

  13. Honestly? Surfin’ USA. Them instrumentals.

  14. Lately, I’ve been a sucker for Smiley Smile. But Pet Sounds is the best.

  15. Pet Sounds for sure.

  16. Hmmm…there are so many to choose from, but I’m a big fan of Surf’s Up.

  17. Pet Sounds then Sunflower/Friends/Today

  18. Pet Sounds

  19. Pet Sounds for me too, but my favorite song is “I Get Around”.

  20. if smile had actually been released, then i’d say smile. is that cheating? i dunno. pet sounds!

  21. Without a doubt, Pet Sounds is one of the most solid pop albums ever made, start to finish.

  22. Pet Sounds, without Question

  23. Yes, yes yes! PET SOUNDS!

  24. I think it’s hard to argue against Pet Sounds, and that’s probably my favorite record. But I’ve still got a soft spot for all the early 60′s cheesy Beach Boys stuff… like seriously, how great is Little Deuce Coup?? Summer Days (And Summer Nights) is a pretty good mix of that and Brian Wilson’s later, artsier stuff… plus it’s got Help Me, Rhonda (my all time favorite BB song), Girl Don’t Tell Me, and California Girls. So good guys.

  25. pet sounds. forever.

  26. While Pet Sounds is probably my all time favorite, my current favorite is Holland.

  27. Pet Sounds… Smiley Smile has some good stuff… But as Brian Wilson said “It’s a teenage symphony to God”

  28. Pet Sounds, forever.

  29. Pet Sounds, no question.

  30. Pet Sounds, without a doubt.

  31. Pet Sounds is brilliant beyond belief!

  32. any answer other than ‘Pet Sounds’ is irrelevant.

  33. Duh, Pet Sounds, like (almost) everyone else.

  34. wild honey is a killer rock album!

  35. i posted this on facebook, but my answer is “Love You”. for real.

  36. Pet Sounds….who knew?
